Sarah Palin's Retard, Trumps Rahm Emanuel's Retard
Sarah Palin brought Rahm Emanuel on the carpet for calling the ideas, of some folks he disagreed with, "retarded." That's okay, if she joins him there, since she used the same word to describe her downs syndrome child, and she called our president sambo, and Hillary Clinton bitch; and she laughed hysterically when a woman who has cancer was called cancer bitch —
Sarah's only "sensitive" when it serves the purpose of bringing her enemies down.
Actually, I qualify for most of the name calling here, but I'm all for those words being bandied about, in private. But not in your face! And by that standard, everything said was fair.
If you can't use the n-word, in the privacy of your home, like Duane Lee "Dog" Chapman did, then when can you use it! Some might think never, but there are some things that people have to come to on their own, in a free society.
Dog Chapman obviously has an affinity for the n-word.
(I)t's not cause she's black it's because we use the word nigger sometimes here. I'm not going to take a chance ever in life losing everything I worked for for 30 years cause some f-bleep- nigger heard us say nigger and turned us in to the Enquirer magazine.
Actually, the press shouldn't even take note of the private use of bad words, between "consenting" adults. Sometimes bad words make us feel so good, that we even use them where they don't fit, like when Charlie Sheen applied the n-word to his wife, at the time, Denise Richards.
When Rahm, in a private meeting, told his colleagues, who were clearly not retarded, that their idea was, it shouldn't have caused a stir, because he was among close associates, who knew his meaning. Sarah Palin should respect this since, she was among friends, when she described Barack Obama's victory over Hillary Clinton as "Sambo beat the bitch."
Some people doubted Eli Johnston when he said that Sarah Palin would sometimes enter the house asking, " “Where’s my retarded baby?”, but maybe they wouldn't be so doubtful if they considered it in the context of the "sambo bitch" thing, or the "cancer bitch" thing, or the idea that it is not unusual for parents to affectionately call small children by their characteristics like, where is my bald headed, bow legged or nappy headed child. Also, if Eli Johnston was lying, he would have postured the behavior, for maximum negative effect, but he put it in the linguistic form that parents generally use, and he excused it as a "joke." Finally, anyone whose paid attention to Eli Johnston would know, that he couldn't have made that up, if he tried —
As for Sarah's denial, it won't be the first time that she denied something that turned out to be true. She claimed she was against earmarks, when her state received more earmarks than any other state, and she hired a politically connected law firm to help her to get them.
Sarah Palin did not support a law suit, but said she did, and she mischaracterized it as a victory for the people, when it was really a victory for Exxon Mobil.
Sarah claimed a per diem allowance, intended for food and lodging purchased away from home, for time that she spent at her own home.
Finally, Palin claims that she left Hawaii because, "perpetual sunshine isn’t necessarily conducive to serious academics,” something that's never been her strong suit. But her father says she left because there were too many Asians, “the presence of so many Asians and Pacific Islanders made her uncomfortable."
When Sarah Palin laughed at the "cancer bitch" thing, an Alaskan writer for the "Anchorage Daily News," called it, "one of the most unprofessional, childish and inexcusable performances I've ever seen from a politician." And that it is! Because she did it in front of all the world, for everyone to see.
It's not what we say behind closed doors that should be scrutinized, it's what we say and do in public, and to others, that should be judged.
If you don't call mentally challenged people - retarded, or a black people - nigger, or women - bitch — to their face. And you don't publicly highlight your disdain or contempt for others, then you should be good to go.
It's so Un-American, to eavesdrop, based on a claim of some special knowledge of what Americans should and should not say, in private. These word police, in charge of regulating private language, create a ball of confusion, with the dizzying effect of making us liars, and sneaks, who apologize on command. But most significantly, we're giving major media the power to define who will, and who will not, be held accountable. Consequently, Rahm Emanuel is taken to task for speaking the word retarded, in private; and Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck repeatedly says it on air, to no condemnation.
When we call people names, or otherwise denigrate them, we know that's wrong. But when we tell our colleagues, that their idea is retarded, we just might think that we're forcefully making a point. Americans need to watch out for this trend, where we look to others to tell us what's right and what's wrong. Out of one side of their mouths, they arbitrarily pronounce whose sins will be condemned, and whose sin will be ignored. Out of the other side of their mouths, they tell us that everything that has guided our morality in the past, is irrelevant, and that we should leave all matters of moral judgment to them. Could it be that someone is trying to control us? Could be that they are succeeding?
